Teens with Food Allergies: Passing the Baton with Care and Confidence

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Parents of teens know that the parenting methods used from ages 1-11 do not work nearly as well in the teen and tween years.  Add to that the fact that teenagers have the highest rate of fatal and near fatal allergic reactions and it’s clear that the stakes are high for parents to get this right. 

We do a disservice to our children if we do not prepare them to manage food allergies on their own. The good news is that there are ways to teach food allergy management  to teens that leave them open to our gentle (often disguised) guidance. This session will explore  simple ways for you to begin to gradually hand over the reigns in a safe and controlled way.
